lyrics

China doll you carry me
To a world that I envy
In a way China dreams
They call long after me
To a world
Where dreams are real

China doll you give off
Tiny rays of gold to them
Don’t you know they won’t see you
At all when you’ve grown old to them
In a world
Where dreams are real

And the end for you
The end will be the same

China doll in the end
You’ll be well preserved
In a case or a photograph
Long gone but they’ll still see
In their world
Where dreams are real

China doll you are made
Of the finest porcelain fragile
China doll when they’ve broken you
Into pieces on the ground
In their world
Where dreams are shattered

I will come and cry
Over pieces of my doll
I will come and cry
Over pieces of my doll

****

The things that I offer you
Do not attract until you’re old and gray
And I know that you are tempted
To remain in the dream with me

And I heard you whisper secrets
You thought you kept in your sleep
And I know that you’d deny them now
Even though I believe - I still believe

And I know that you and I will never
We’ll never come to agree again
‘Cause these things that you are dreaming
When you awake you can’t see anymore

Verner’s music often centers on a journey of fixing the broken or finding the lost. Lyrics, Logic, and Lullabies present contemporary younger songs from a salty renaissance man. ... more
